Mr, J • Edgar Hoover, 

Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation 

United States Department of Justice ' 

Washington 25, D,C, 

Dear Mr. Hoover: 

This is my opportunity to wish you the joys of the Christmas Season and 
to let you know that Book Reporters are in deep gratitude to you for our .visit 
to the F,B,I, on October 17, 1958, 

As requested by your letter off September 18, 1958* we called your office 
upon our arrival in Washington D.C. for an appointment* 

May we especially commend Mr, Bernard M, Suttler, whose courtesy and 
consideration will never be forgotten by our committee, \ 

I woulcLJLike you to know that our Book Reporters units are taking pride 
in including^"Masters of Deceit" in their schedule, and I am sure many of them 
will review ii to .large auaiences. 

Since Mr, Arthur Vogel of the United States Information Agency has become 
so vitally interested in the possibilities of Book Reporters doing an inter- 
cultural job with other Nations, we shall return to Washington at some later 
date and hope again to be able to make some report of progress to the F,B,I, 

May God increase his blessings to you in the Christmas Season for your 
great contribution &o humanity, b6

Dear Sir: /j : 

I have read your latest book on communism,. "Masters of Deceit", with deepest 

" ■i n ii »■ ii ■ » » -^ , 

interest and concern* — 

\ 
As the communist party largely depends on our college students for its most ^ 

active recruits, I am writing to urge that a determined drive be made to include 

in our high school curriculum a short course on the evils of communism* If such 

an appeal should come from a man of national reputation it would have great weight 

and a great deal of good might be accomplished. 

Why cannot the President with his full knowledge of the danger confronting our 
country make such an appeal? 

V/e must do something to curb this menace which is reaching [ into every corner 
of our lives. 

I enclose a clipping which may interest you, however we need a more far reaching 
program than the one suggested. ~C

Mr. J* Edgar Hoover- 
Director 

Federal Bureau of Investigation 
Washington, D.C. 

My dear Mr. Hoover 

Your book, 1'Ma.sters of Deceit " . certainly deserves 
the best-sellerdom it had achieved so quickly. It 
gave me so much informative pleasure I wanted to tell 
you so. I am recommending it to all my friends as 
one of the best publications I have ever encountered. 
I must admit I was quite shocked at some of the facts 
disclosed in this book. I feel it is one which every 
able American citizen should read and I also feel it 
should be placed on the required reading list for our 
high schools throughout the nation. 

If - people would only wake up to face i;he reality that 
.communism does exist and the harmful effects* it could 
have on our future generations, it is my firm belief 
that the entire party could be liquidated. 




May I add, I have always been an ardent* admirer of 
the FBI and_its work. P am particularly interested 
in you Mr. Hoover, your integrity and* since'rfeit^ 
You are my idol of justice and the American -waj^ 
life and I sincerely believe you are wholly intereb-re 
in the welfare of the American people. ^

My feelings today are .that the era of gangsterism in 
this country has stepped down from the position of 
Public Enemy No. 1 and has been replaced.by the even 
greater threat, "gangsters of communism. " I am 
looking forward to reading your book and gaining some 
insight into the threat of communism to this country 
and our previous way of life. With the knowledge 
gained from your book I might, in some small way, 
help guard against this ever impending threat of 
communism.

Continuing reports of anti-Communist revolts 
in Tibet and China further justify anti- 
Communists » long-running arguments in behalf 
of preservation of Nationalist' China. 
Siegrist recommends "A Guide to Anti-Communist 
Action" as a ready reply to the question:. 
"What can I do to fight Communism?" 
Siegrist also notes that the Schwarz testimony 
and several books, long promoted on his broadcasts, 
are recommended by the American Bar Association 
Special Committee on Communist Tactics, Strategy 
and Objectives - and adds recommendation of 
"Human Events" and "Counterattack" as additionally 
good and useful in formative reading*

O 



Oq 



With each passing day it becomes increasingly obvious iihat 
Khrushchev *s Red Chinese comrades are encountering a rapidly-spreading, 
far-reaching, and deadly serious revolution against their efforts to 
totally enslave the people of Tibet and China under Mao Tse-tung » s 
completely amoral and inhuman Commune system. 

* 

Travelers arriving in Hong Kong from Communist China tonight 
report almost daily executions in Canton*, which is one of China ! s 
major cita.es with many of the executed condemned (Red style) for 
disrupting the "peopled Commune" program, while others are charged 
with being Chinese Nationalist Intelligence Agents. 

Yesterday, a Formosa-based correspondent for an American radio 
network reported^ that anti-Communist revolts by Nomadic, Tibetan and 
Moslem tribesmen have been harrassing Red China since last April; 
that the revolts are spreading from Tibet to Southwest China and to 
the northwest as far as the border of outer Mongolia, and that, last 
October 6th, these revolts became so serious that Red Chinese Defense 
Minister Peng Te Huai hurried to the remote Southwestern Province of 
-Singhai , at -that time^ -to direct operat"iohs~agains t the rebels This 
is precisely the same information that we passed on to you last week 
as we pointed out that the emergency trip coincided with the temporary 
cease fire the Communists proclaimed in the Quemoy offshore island 
area October 6. Yesterday^ report also conferred our previous 
report that: 

"On several occasions the intensity of the uprisings surpassed 
the Hungarian revolt in 1956." 

Also yesterday, that Formosa-based reporter added that there was 
"some kind of liaison" between the Nationalist Government on Formosa 
and the "anti-Communist forces in Tibet and Northwest Chinas" 



/ 




Q0 • -2- OQ 



Those who. use- to listen to this reporter as far back as 1950 . 
and 1951 * when he was broadcasting, each morning, from another Chicago 
station, may recall that, in those days, we were reporting on the close 
and effective manner in which, from Formosa, the Chinese Nationalist 
government and its intelligence agency was maintaining close, vital, 
and effective contact with thousands of anti-Communist guerrillas on 
the mainland.. Even at that time,, we reported revolts* 

Keep in mind that that was back in the days when, virtually every- 
one in and about the Department of State, the White House, the United. 
Nations, and the American journalism profession was arguing that 
Nationalist China was done ,. that* Communism had*, completely, subjugated, 
the Chinese people,, and that we might just as; well' completely abandon 
Chiang Kai-shek and his legitimate government of Free China and recog- 
nize and deal with Red China » v 

These new admissions of ever-mounting revolt in Tibet and China 
against Kremlinnbased Communism not only justify the private ihtel-- 
ligence which this reporter was passing on in those dark and- dangerous 
days,^ but they certainly also justify our long-running argument,- based 
on morality, common sense and private intelligence, that one day the 
people, of- China would somehow overcome the overwhelming odds against 
•revolution and destroy their Kremlin-directed masters. 

Thus, do these ever-more-frequent reports of rampant revolution 
throughout Tibet and China- not only justify these arguments,, arguments 
which have also f .been those of the government of Free China, as well, 
of course, but, > indeed, f do these increasing reports of revolution 
behind the Bamboo Curtain, make all: the more amoral and ludicrous ev£ry 
semblance of .a ^argument -in favor.- of -anything short of American 
assistance to the enslaved people of China and Tibet in order that 
their .crusade, for liberation be furthered and hastened to what one day 



^ 



" 3 " OQ 

must be its total success in the name of God-intended justice * 

We should recall - we should be reminded - by all means, ladies 
and gentlemen, that contrary to the propaganda the United States 
Information Service, the State Department and the pussy-foots ramping 
in Washington, the people behind the Iron and Bamboo Curtains need 
no encouragement to hate Communism; need no encouragement to revolt 
against Communism - what they need is arms to help them. 

The Nationalist Defense Ministry says Chinese Communist jet 
fighters have been spotted near the Quemoy offshore islands for the 
past two straight days. 

The U.S. Army has moved in new armored equipment to reinforce 
its *f,000-man garrison in Communist-threatened West Berlin. 

Peter Nikitin, Soviet Deputy Director for Economic Affairs, is 
Damascus for talks on Russian economic aid to the Syrian region of 
Nasser's so-called United Arab Republic of Syria and Egypt. 

General Charles de Gaulle's government of Prance has just stunned 
Frenchmen with a new austerity program of what it calls "truth and 
severity" and what it will mean in terms of higher prices, lower 
s ubsid ies and frozen wa ges for the average Frenchman. 

The average Frenchman has reacted as if he had been pushed into 
a cold shower - it might be good for him but in has made him shudder. 

In one swoop over the week-end de Gaulle and his finance minister, 
small businessman Antoine Pinay, devalued the French franc by 17.55 
per cent, unfroze franc exchanges abroad and lifted quota restrictions 
90 per cent on France's trade with Western "European nations. 

Today Pinay announced the price. 

Starting January 1, for example, Frenchmen will pay roughly 10 
per cent more for cigarettes, wine, coal, railroad tickets, gas, and 
electricity - either because of higher taxes or because government 



00 """'" oq 

price subsidies had been removed* 

Automatic cost-of-living wage increases were abolished for all 
but the lowest paid French workers* 

Half a million workers earn only the minimum wage of 1^9.25 
francs an hour, which is about 30.2 cents. Starting February 1, they 
will get a five to six per cent wage boost. The other workers will 
have to get by on their present pay. 

Farmers will lose $75,000,000 a year in subsidies and higher 
social security costs, 

France's businessmen will be exposed for the first time in 
generations to real competition from abroad. 

For Americans and other foreigners in Paris - for the time being 
at least - the devaluation of the franc was a boon, however. The 
tourist will get exactly 73*70 francs more for each dollar's worth 
he buys in France, 

Thus, until the inevitable price hikes catch up with tourists, . 
they will find goods and services in France 17«55 per cent cheaper 
than they were before this week-end. 

The -aim of the reform program - the most-drastic since~1928 in 
France - was to get France ready for the European common market. 
The common market starts taking effect oh New Year's Day with a 10 
per -cent reduction in tariffs among its member countries - France, 
•West Germany, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg, 

Within V$ to 18 years, if the plan works, these countries will 
form a single, tariff -free economic bloc as important as the United 
States or Russia, 

De Gaulle had to act decisively or watch France price itself 
out of the common market. 

Previous French governments had devalued the franc seven times 




bo ~ 5 ~ oo 

since World War II. But they never had the power that de Gaulle has 
.to enforce the austerity measures that went with devaluation. The 
upshot always was another round of inflation. 

But now Prance has found what can will be a savior in Charles 
de Gaulle and of course, the Communists - against who de Gaulle has 
ever worked - are most unhappy. 

And speaking of Communism - for many years, listeners to our 
broadcasts and members of our lecture audiences have constantly asked 
the searching question, "What can I do to fight Communism?" 

There are, of course, many ways in which all Americans can 
effectively fight Communism, beginning with their determination to 
understand it for the menace that it is and the sinister and diabolical 
manner in which it works against us. 

For the essentials of that basic understanding,, this reporter 
could recommend no' better text than that set forth by J. Edgar Hoover 
in his brilliant book, "Masters of Deceit." 

But now, at long last, comes a sensational new text which, given 
a basic understanding of the Communist infamy, goes far to answer 
that question, "What can I do to fight Communism?" 

It's title, very appropriately, is, "A Guide to Anti-Communist 
Action". It's author is Dr. Anthony T. Bouscaren, a nationally-famous 
associate professor of political science at Marquette University. 

Among other things, "A Guide to Anti-Communist Action" contains 
special chapters by such recognized experts on the subject as:- 
J. Edgar Hoover, John Poster Dulles, Hanson Baldwin, David Sarnoff , 
Geoffrey P. Hudson, and Captain W.D. Puleston (of the U.S. Navy) and 
Herbert R. 0' Conor. 

Reviewing this unprecedented book by Dr # Bouscaren, who, last 
year, served as a member of the faculty of the Army War College, the 

^_ > _^_-_ .__.___ . _..___. * -_ ' v J 



©O ' - 6 - ©o 



authoritative newsletter, "Human Events," says* 

"Bouscaren's chief message Is that we must abandon the forlorn 
hope of "coexisting" with communism, and set about to destroy it* 
In foreign affairs, he points out, this means adopting a policy of 
'liberation,' aimed at freeing the captive people behind the Iron 
Curtain; in domestic affairs, it means an unremitting effort to clean 
subversives out of Government, to identify and expose Communist 
fronters and fellow- travelers who mouth the Kremlin's line, and to 
promote anti-Communist books and periodicals." 

And "Human Events" concludes i "This is a pioneer effort in 
uniting, within the covers of one compact volume, the broad range 
of Marxist theory and the hard facts about Communist aggression, 
foreign and domestic. It is a book which every anti-Communist should 
buy and read." (End quote, "Human Events •") 

Since, as this accurate review makes clear, those things set 
forth in this book, "A Guide to Anti-Communist Action" reflect much 
of the same things which, as our listeners know, this reporter has 
long been advocating, we heartily recommend this book as a compact, 
but valuable, answer to the question frequently put to us: "What 
can I do to fight Communism?" 

It should be further noted that this book, "A Guide to Anti- 
Communist Action," is recommended by the recent great report by the 
American Bar Association Special Committee on Communist Tactics, 
Strategy and Objectives. 

Also among the books recommended by that same much-talked-of 
report are: J. Edgar Hoover's "Masters of Deceit," Judge Robert 
Morris' "No Wonder We Are Losing," John Noble's "I Was A Slave in 
Russia," and the famous testimony on "The Communist Mind" by Dr. 
Frederick Charles Schwarg before the professional staff of the House 



OO "" 7 " o o 



Committee on Un-American Activities . 

We take considerable pride in reminding our listeners that Mr. 
Morris, Mr. Noble, Dr. Bouscaren and Dr. Schwarz have all appeared as 
guests on this program, dating back to nearly three years ago when, 
on a couple occasions when we were ill, Dr. Bousacaren filled in for 
us as guest commentator. 

Also, as our listerners know, it was the Allen-Bradley Company, 
our great sponsor, which brought Dr. Schwarz *s brilliant testimony to 
national attention by reproducing that testimony, in two-page adver- 
tisement form, in three dozen newspapers from coast-to-coast, and in 
another 11 newspapers just last week. 

Also as we reminded our listeners last week, reprints of Dr. 
Schwarz' testimony are available, free, in amounts up to 25j to 
individuals who direct their requests to this reporter, care of WLS, 
Chicago. Beyond 2? copies, the testimony is available in the same 
manner at the cost rate of three-and-a-half-cents per reprint - 
although - the reprints are available - free - in any amounts - to 
schools, to churches, and to school or church organizations. 

Dr. Bouscaren r s book, "A Guide to Anti-Communist Action," is 
available at the nationally-advertised price of four dollars to those 
who wish to address their order, complete with their check or money 
order for that amount to this reporter - as is J. Edgar Hoover* s 
"Masters of Deceit," at five dollars, Judge Morris* "No Wonder We 
are Losing," at two-fifty, and John Nobel's "I Was A Slave In Russia," 
at three-75. 

As the American Bar Association Special Committee's report 
>roperly puts its "Books play a vitally important part in the history 
of government and economics," as it lists the above-mentioned books 
and the Schwarz report, as among those which the report describes as, 



CO " ~' 8 " Oq 

quote y "A number of books published during the past year by some of 
the world's top experts on communism (which) testify to the overriding 
importance of the Communist issue, and to the unhappy reality that 
the United States is losing the battle a gainst international communism." 

It is, as our regular listeners know, upon that precise premise 
that this reporter has devoted so much attention to reviewing and 
recommending these and related books, and, as it has developed, to 
supplying them to the general public. 

Among other things, we feel in distinguished company to learn 
that, by indirection, our ideas and our recommendations and our efforts 
coincide with the recommendations found in this tremendous and highly 
informative report by the American Bar Association Special Committee 
on Communist Tactics, Strategy and Objectives* 

And - speaking of furthering the understanding of the dangers 
against us - we should like at this point, to add a plug here for two 
great publications which are must reading and must filing for this 
reporter? "Human Events" and "Counterattack.." 

We shall be delighted, as a public service, to pass on any re- 
quests for information on,, or subscriptions to, either of these out* 
standing monthly newsletters to their respective publishers: Frank 
G. Hanighen of "Human Events," and J.G. Keenan of "Counterattack." 

Meanwhile, Chicago doctors are struggling tonight to keep life 
in one day old Gloria Hanses, who weighed only 12 ounces and if she 
lives - and let's pray she does - she will tie the all time record for 
the tiniest baby born and to survive., 

Let's pray she does.: 

Bob Siegrist #I Good night.

ADOirr'rtJse of MASTERS OF DECEIT in the Wayne, New Jersey- Schools 



I 



Dr. John H. Martin, Superintendent of Schools in Wayne, New Jersey, 
has set up a five-weeks unit in his frobiems of Democracy course for 
the study of MASTERS 0? DECEIT by J. Edgar Hoover. Dr. Martin, his 
teachers, and his pupils are excited and enthusiastic about this new 
course, and are planning publicity through newspaper articles as well 
as a confirmed endorsement by the Hew Jersey American I«gion., In his 
enthusiasm Dr. Martin has asked Henry Holt if it would be possible to 
thave Mr. Hoover appear briefly at a school assembly any time during the 
bext six weeks. We have told Dr. Martin that Mr; Hoover probably is 
laoasaitted several months in advance, but that we would forward the re- 
quest to him. 

Rjrhaps, if he cannot fit this into his busy schedule, Mr. Hoover 
would be willing to write an expression of his interest to, Dr. Martin.

Dear Mr. -Hoover: 

I am writing this letter, belated as it is,, to let you 
know, I think you are doing a wonderful job. lam, a simple, hard 
working family man, active In my Knights <jf Columbus, ancfHoly 
Name organizations. Often times, the future of Our Beloved Countyy 
looks very black, i don't know where we would be, if it was not for " 
Great Americans like ypu. 

Your book "Masters of Deceit" was a big contribution, 
toward stemming the tide of surrender "co- existence, cultural 
exchange, Mikoyan's visit," etc. 

I hope this smear campaign against you will be a 
complete flopj and possibly serve to awaken spine of our- leaders, 
and other misguided Americans, to the real dangers, our beloved 
Country faces.. My prayers Will be with you in all your undertakings, 
I pray you will never become discouraged, because without men like, 
you, Our Great Republic*, will become another has been in history. 
May GodCBIess and heip,you4n your difficult, and seemingly impossible

We thought that Mr # Hoover would be pleased to 
know that Dr« John^fr^rtin, Sj^egi^

as an auxiliary course of study in ProBiems or

the American Legion in setting up the program, which 
will be a four week unit* There are over 200 
seniors participating in the course. 

I Dr» Martin made a particular point of calling Holt 
to tell us about the project, so it occurred to me 
that perhaps Mr» Hoover might wish to send him a note* 



Please remember me to Mr» Hoorar, and warm good wishes

I realise you are a very very busy man but beg of you to s 
give the contents of this letter some consideration* 

For a long time I have been deeply concerned about the youth 
of our country -not being taught how to combat communism and 
when your book ^'Masters of DeceiJ ; 11 was published couldn*t help 
"believe that it was the answer ♦ In other words, Mr # Hoover, 
would it be possible for your book to be used as a text book 
in all Junior High and Senior High Schools? By the time these 
youngsters were ready for college they would be well prepared 
to turn a deaf ear to communism as long as they live* I be- 
lieve discussions, conversations etc # , on how to fight communism 
should be among children as. well as adults* 

Something^must be done jt&linform the youngsters of the United 
States of'the rapid progress the communists are making for some 
day they will ask why they were not informed of same* Mr. Hoover 
yon have done many many wonderf ul t hings for this country but this 
would be one of the greatest deed? ever. Please don»t let 1959 
pass without your doing all in your power to get the schools irtfj 
America to teach the children how to fight communism. 



Thank you for your t ime ,

Dear Mr. Hoover: 

Yesterday I had occasion to speak with one 
of your New York Agents regarding, en organization which 
seemed suspiciously like a Communist front. Ee advised 
me to write to the Attorney General in Washington if I 
was interested in knowing whether it was a front organi- 
zation as he could not pass this information on to me. 
Ihis I have done. 

3)utf$ng our conversation I had mentioned that 
I read your* j*Masters of Deceit". I further told him- 
that I thought you did a masterful jo"b and a definite 
service to the country. As a consequence he said !l Why 
don*t you drop the Chief a note, he likes to hear 
things like that# !l Here is your note* 

After finishing the hook, my first thought 
was that it would make an excellent tert hook for all 
school children. I hope someone in Washington had 
the foresight to give a copy of it as a going-away 
gift to Mr. Mikoyan.

22 .January 1959; 

Dear -Mr. Hoover, 

Having just finished reading "Masters of Deceit" I feel 
that I would like to write to you to tell you firstly how extraordinarily 
interesting I found, the book & secondly what a great international service 
you have performed by exploring Communism & making its aims & 
methods inteliglble to the ordinary man in the street. I knew nothing 
whatever about the Party before reading your book *&, I have certainly 
had my eyes opened. One of. the most illuminating passages showing 
the single-mindedness of these people in where you wrote the case of 
the comrade who was told he, was sleeping too much & should cuthis 
rest back in order to have more time for Party work. 

Your, book had a good review in the paper I take. I only 
hope a lot of people will read it, but I have^yet to see many copies on 
sale. Mine had to be ordered specially. 

I should like to end by wishing you personally & the 
Bureau, for whom I have the highest regard, every success in the 
future. 



Yours sincerely

E.S. I should add.by way of a postscript that "Persons in Hiding" has

^uusmng, , j^cnpisnop, ^Boston, this mormng, the Carairiial indicated his 
intense desire that a paperback edition, oir* Masters of Deceit" be printed and-

paperback edition would assure, a wide distribution in these countries, and he 
intends to contact, Mr. Edgar T. Rigg, President of Henry Holt and Company, Inc. , 
regarding this matter. 

.SPANISH EDITION OF "MASTERSOF DECEIT":

June, 1958. Ambassador Hill desired that " Masters x>f Deceit" be published in. the 
Spanish language. and'be circulated iii Latin America by the United States Government 
through tie United States Information Service (USIS). In accordance with USIS 
procedures, a local publishing house, in Mexico was contacted, assured of backing

-r The January, 1959, issue of "World Marxist Review" contains a^ 

review of "Masters of Deceit" written by one John/Gibbons. The fT World Marxist ) 

Review"is identified as the English edition of "p/o)>lems of Peace and Socialism" ^C 

published in Prague. Distributors of the English edition are listed as Central ^2 

Books LTD, 37 Gray's Inn Road, London, W. C. 1. ^ 



As expected, being a communist publication, the review of "Masters 
of Deceit" is most critical and derogatory. The review is filled with old canards 
to the effect that the Director is a thought control policeman, a manipulator of 
secret informants and a tool of American big business. The review contains 
nothing new, being exclusively a rehash of previous communist attacks against the 
ful and Mr. Hoover personally. 

•Among the allegations made in the review are the following: 

o 

1. There is no truth i n "Masters of Deceit. " "Yet truth is 
precisely the one element missing from the F.B.l. arsenal, and one would need 
a pretty powerful microscope to discover much of it in 'Masters of Deceit. '" 

in 

2. The book is a conglomeration ofiuritruths gathered together by 
ghost writers for the purpose of trying to defeat communism. 

3. The FBI Lfafc a secret police, boto of deceit in 1908. It was 
founded by an Attorney General named Bonaparte, a relative of the first Napoleon* 
It was founded contrary to the wishes of Congress.

over are making extensive use of Max Lowenthal' s "The Federal Bureau of 
Investigation. (Lowenthal is actually mentioned by name in this review and

taken directly or indirectly from Lowenthal. ) It is also clear that the inter-

FOR GROUND-BREAKING CEREMONY 

Mikoyan See/cs Soff Spof ' 
in Qur Naf/ona/ Secur/fy 




By Bob Ramsey 

^THE APATHY- WE AIMER. 
ICANS show toward Com- 
munist infiitraiion of our 
country continues to grow. 

In his year-end report made 
this past December, J. Edgar 
Hoover warned us saying: 
"Sensing a more favorable 
atmosphere, the Communist 
Party, U.S.A., and its dupes 
and sympathizers gained fur- 
ther courage and became 
more vocal in their attacks 
upon law enforcement and 
other professions which are 
« dedicated to preserving our 
freedoms. 

"Its leadership reins are 
firmly held by .rabidly pro- 
Soviet elements and the 
party's ultimate objective re- 
mains the overthrow and 
destruction of our govern- 
ment by force and violence." 

AT THIS WRITING, Anas- 
tas L Mikoyan, Soviet Deputy 
Premier, is touring the U. S. 

Acting as a messenger boy 
for Nikita Khrushchev, Mi- 
koyan has as his purpose here 
to find a soft spot in our na- 



tional security for a ground- 
breaking , ceremony. jL 

Wielding the tools zbf 
"peaceful co-existence" and 
"trade," Mikoyan hopes to 
unearth the first spadeful of 
compromise between the U- 
S. and the U.S.S.R. If the 
Red deputy can accomplish 
this then the ground breaking 
for Khrushchev's boast, "We 
will bury you," will have been 
successfully inaugurated. 

ACTING AS an interna- 
tional barker for world Com- 
munism, Mikoyan thinks and 
works as a Communist. He 
uses terms that to him and to 
all Communists have a com- 
pletely different meaning 
from the one ordinarily as- 
sociated with them. 

Take the word compromises 
Usually the word means to 
reach an agreement after con- 
cessions have been made, by 
both sides. 

For a Communist's defini- 
tion of compromise we refer 
to Masters 0/ Deceit, written 
I by Mr. Hoover. In his book 
I the FBr chief lists a glossary 
j of words and terms often 
used by the Reds. , ^

AT THE TOP of page 343 
,% \Vg f ind : "COMPROMISE 
(MANEUVER, CONCES- 
SIONS): 

"Tactics whereby* in order 
to promote the ultimate goal 
of Communism, adjustments 
and temporary agreements 
can be made with the enemy, 
that is. the non-Communist 
world. 'Concessions do not 
mean peace with capitalism, 
but war on a new plane'." 
(Lenin) 

On his sight-seeing sally 
around the nation, Mikoyan 
stresses (he need for trade as 
a means to lessening the 
tensions of the cold war. 

While in Cleveland he said: 
"Trade can help strengthen 
peace, and peace on the other 
'hand creates the proper con- 
ditions for trade." 

AGAIN WE TURN to Mr. 
Hoover's, monumental work 
on Communism; -InjChapter 
14, called "Communist Strat- 
egy and Tactics," he writes: 
"They (Communists) urge the 
development of a peacetime 
economy by advocating trade 
between tfie United States 
and Russia because Russia 



would benefit." The Com- 
munists believe, writes 
Hoover, that "co-operation or 
collaboration with non-Com- 
munists must never be more 
than a tactic. It must have as 
its actual long-range goal the 
weakening and discrediting of 
democracy and its eventual 
destruction," 

IN A RECENT weekly 
column, "The Reds —"What 
w w?," written by Louis 
Budenz and carried * in some 
of the diocesan papers of the* 
Register system, Budenz refers 
to Comrade Mikoyan as a 
"monster of terrorism," a 
"political trickster," and a 
"sycophant." 

Recalling how Mikoyan was 
once the trusted friend of 
Dictator Stalin, Budenz tells 
how the travel-minded deputy 
premier hailed Stalin as "The 
leader oMhe peoples of the 
Soviet Union and of op- 
pressed humanity the world 
over."" 

BUT AFTER STALINfS 
death in 1953, Mikoyan had a 
change of heart. Budenz 
writes: "He (Mikoyan) took 
the lead in downgrading 



Stalin in order to build up the 
iron rule of Khrushchev/%^ — 

"That the same double-deal- 
ing spirit marks Mikoyan in 
his 4 coming here," Budenz 
continues, "is indicated by* 
the November^ issue of* Politi- 
cal Affairs issued from Mos- 
cow under Mikoyan's. direc- 
tion. It is replete with at- 
tacks on the U. S. as 'the main 
force of present-day imperial- 
ism* and of 'aggression'." 

AND SO MIKOYAN is at 
present visiting "imperialis- 
tic" America.. His coming 
here at its best, can be de- 
scribed as a betrayal. 

We are reminded of an /in- 
cident similar to the one be- 
ing enacted by Mikoyan as he 
tours the nation. 

The betrayer, known as 
Judas, cameas a peace-loving 
friend to the One who was to 
be betrayed. His words were- 
those you might expect to hear 
from a trusted son.* Remem- 
ber them well and the conse- 
quences they introduced. 
"And -forthwith coming to 
Jesus, he said, 'Hail Rabbi.' 
And he kissed. Him" (Matt. 
xxvi, 49). >

29 January 1959 



Dear sir; 

I have just finished reading your book "Masters of 
Deceit. " and found it one of the most interesting and informative 
books I have ever read. 

I find this an extremely difficult letter to write as 
I have never written a "fan letter" before. I am one of those 
"average American housejwives" so often spoken of. My husband 
is a Captain in the Air Force and we have three children, whose 
future we are most concerned with in these uncertain times. 

I have looked, so many times, for a book that would 
explain simply and exactly, "What is Communism?", 
"How does it work?", "What are its ultimate goals?" and "How does it 
affect American?" At last I have found the answers in your "Masters 
of Deceit. " 

I feel your book should be put on the required reading 
list of every senior high school and college in our country and every 
housewif eifincouraged to read it. 

I for one shall encourage everyone I know to read it. 

Sincerely, 



be

J# Edgar Hoover, Director 
Federal Bureau of Investigation 
Washington, D* C* 

Dear Mir. Hoover: 

Have ju#t finished reading your recent book which was published in 1957 en- 
titled^ Masters of Deceit" and believe thatit should be read by everyone 
regardless 01 : tiK532*TJrofession, business or station in lifd* 

I was prepared to find out a lot of things I did not already know, but I was 
also amazed to find out a lot of things were a lot worsesthan I thought they 
were* Yfe just hope, and I am sure that you do to, that more people will give 
more thought to the basic freedoms they so glibly accept and take for granted 
every minute of every day. 

We think so much of your book that we are going to use some of the material from 
your book to present to local church groups. These will be panel group discussions 
and will of course tie-in with and be contrasted with Christianity. Communism as"" 
a religion when presented to Faithful Christians should be quite refreshing to say 
the least* 

1 Anyway, I enjoyed reading your book and do hope that you will get to see this 
letter* 

Hope that you will have many more successful and healthy years in your present^ 
job. God : Bless Xouii ' f $ \ '* 

( 




Very truly yours

Last year our school received a complimentary

, Blasters of 



Deceit* The students 



here entfoy it very much and It has been in use al- 
most constantly from the day we received it* 

There is a parish near us that is starting a 
new library and we thought Masters of Deceit is 
one book that must be in it. Would it be at all 
possible for us to have another complimentary copy 
that we could present to them? 

We will be glad to hear from you*

"This is Polish Radio Warsaw, voice of peace 
and friendship calling North America." 

Well at least that f s what the announcer 
said. Would that it were so. Would that 
names like Paderewski, Pulaski, Kosciuszko, 
Chopin, Copernicus, and Mickiewicz were in 
the news from Poland today rather than the 
raouthings of hirelings. Would that the 
PoUsJa-peopieryerer-n©t^presentl3r in the grasp 
of H&aters of Deceit. Wotild that their voice 
couM ^-PQflflfr the air/ ^ 

It can and in due time will. When it does 
it will broadcast one message: An end to 
treachery I An end to spies and liars!. 

rrom the first hand knowledge of conversation 
with people who were part of the Battle of* 
Warsaw, I am aware of the Polish peoples<y 
over-riding abhorance of communist duplicity. 

It will be my hope and prayer tha&the 
restoration of independence to Poland may 
somehow be accomplished without a^orrent of 
bloodshed. Because the false philosophy of 
&* communism deceives even its own adherents is 
f/ no ^egson they themselves should suffisr violence.

IWhat has the F.*B?I. been doing, recently>"^thoug;h I 
know it iS'ja secret organization, I feel We should. hear 
more about its accomplishments. One thing they 
should take direct action in the exploitation of sex by- 
big industrialists tcrs.wing business deals.. That.is, if 
they haven't already .done so. 



P. S. I am how reading T your book "Masters of Deceit. " 
It is a "must" book in our high school. I was so shocked 
by the determination of. the ^communists; that I am 
thankful for having gotten a chance to read it. 



Thank „you for your time be
